I Am “The Change”

I am the change
I have always longed for.

I have been robotically standing in line,
waiting for my magic number to be called,
hoping for the chance to shine.

I have been searching far and deep,
high and low, wide and long,
inside and out
for what’s already in front of me,

smacking me right in the face
with my own destiny.

All I had to do was declare it, believe it,
and start living my dream life.

Thanks and Praise

Before I open
my calculated eyes in the mornings,
the first thing that comes out
of the meditation
of my heart
are words
of praise and thanksgiving.

Not to ask for anything
but to “simply” say
“thank you Lord
for all Your blessings”.
